AIRPORT TERMINAL DESIGN

The purpose of this paper is a brief survey of terminal design from the people moving aspect, the baggage handling aspect, and the service providing aspect. The underlying assumption of the paper is that the building is no more than a connector between air and ground transportation systems. The report is divided into two major areas of discussion with these being broken down further into subheadings. The departure includes land transport arrival, baggage surrender, check-in, landside wait, statutory control, airside wait, and boarding the aircraft. The arrival includes, leaving the aircraft, immigration, baggage wait and claim, and land transport departure.
